Concord Academy, Concord, MA
Accredited by NEASC
Concord Academy, an independent college preparatory school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, Massachusetts, anticipates an opening for a Wilcox Fellow beginning in the fall of 2019.
The Wilcox Fellows program seeks to identify and nourish teaching talent among groups underrepresented on independent school faculties. Fellows workshop pedagogy with experienced faculty and meet regularly with other teachers new to the school to talk about teaching and learning. They are mentored by a colleague and supervised by the Dean of Faculty and Department Chair. Fellows carry half-time teaching or subject loads and are able to put their full energy into developing expertise and skill in their chosen area of school life, while nurturing a commitment to working with adolescents in a stimulating and supportive academic setting. Many fellows choose to work with student affinity groups or the school’s Office of Community & Equity. The duration of the Fellowship is one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second. For fellows who continue at CA in a second year, the school provides support toward graduate work and mentorship in the job search and/or graduate school application process. Coaching opportunities may be available, but coaching is not required and carries additional compensation.
Interested candidates are asked to send a resume with a cover letter, transcript, a statement about their teaching interests and ways they will contribute to the diversity of the Concord Academy faculty, and the names and contact information of three references to:
